It’s just over a year since I launched this blog in December 2014 so I have missed my blogiversary !
Not being a very organised person I dip in and out of my CurryAus study at irregular intervals. As a novice I don’t know if I am going about things in a smart way but as I like to learn by trial and error I’m content.
I have found that Evernote is helping with my organisation. When I find a Curry mention somewhere (eg from a Google alert) that I don’t have time to deal with immediately I save it as a note in my CurryAus Evernote Notebook. When I have time I return to the notebook and process snippet by trying to find further evidence for the facts they reveal then I add the details to my CurryAus database in Family Historian. I then add a “posted” tag to the Evernote note to indicate that I have processed the information.
I also use Evernote to keep track of progress in recording details from small databases I come across like country cemetery lists and genealogy society indexes. I have note titled Resources Progress in which I list the Name and URL of resources I want to check. Here I record the date and where I am up to in checking each resource for Curry as I add it to my CurryAus database in Family Historian. When I finish checking a resource I mark it with Done in bright green text. This helps to keep me on track and remember what I have already checked.
As I hear from Currys (no-one as contacted me yet) I will also use Evernote to set up notes with their details in the CurryAus notebook. I am sure that as time progresses I will find even more ways that Evernote can keep me organised.
Have you any Evernote tips for me?
